Project AMR

Antibiogram and molecular characterization for carbapenem-resistant bacteria isolated from fresh produce collected from local markets in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Funding Agency: International Foundation for Science (IFS), Sweden


The project aims to understand the prevalence of carbapenem-resistant microbes, especially those that the World Health Organization (WHO) has listed as “critical”, in fresh fruits and vegetables sold in Kathmandu valley. Furthermore, the project also targets on molecular characterization of the genes responsible for causing the resistance.
